“For All Time: Clocks and Watches from the National Heritage Museum” has  been very popular with visitors. Here's your chance to delve deeper into the history of clockmaking in New England with a special lecture by Philip Zea,  President of Historic Deerfield. Mr. Zea serves as a consultant to many museums on the topics of early furniture, clocks, and historical interpretation. His talk will  explore the historical context of clocks made between 1725-1840, and show how they are part of the social and economic fabric of New England life. Admission to the Museum, the exhibition, and the lecture are free.
